Wireless Body Area networks and Smart IoT Systems for Pervasive Healthcare

Modern technologies such as wireless body area networks (WBAN) and Internet of Things (IoT) are expected to play a vital role in many pervasive healthcare applications. IoT integrated with other technologies such as WMAN could significantly transform the landscape of health care through uninterrupted and ubiquitous monitoring and rehabilitation of patients in private and public care facilities. Many applications in health care such as fall detection, patient surveillance, early detection of medical diseases/conditions and detection of smart drug delivery, etc. will greatly benefit the future healthcare systems. 

This talk will present recent research into developing pervasive healthcare solution using WBAN and Smart IoT systems. In particular, the talk will highlight key research challenges that are key to building viable systems for pervasive health care.  

About the Speaker

Nauman Aslam is Professor of Network Systems and Security in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences, Northumbria University, UK. Before joining Northumbria University as a Senior Lecturer in 2011, he worked as an Assistant Professor at Dalhousie University, Canada. He received his PhD in Engineering Mathematics from Dalhousie University, Canada in 2008. Professor Aslam is leading the Cyber Security and Network Systems (CyberNets) research group at Northumbria University.

His research interests cover diverse but interconnected areas related to communication networks. His current research efforts are focused at addressing problems related to wireless body area networks and IoT, network security, QoS-aware communication in industrial wireless sensor networks and application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in communication networks. He has led an Erasmus Mundus Action-2 project titled Sustainable Green Economies through Learning, Innovation, Networking and Knowledge Exchange (gLINK), which is funded by the European Union (worth 3.03 million Euros).
